A catalog site for Classic TV shows
If you like Classic TV from of the 50's, I found a catalog site that makes it easy to find and watch episodes streaming from Archive.org at:
There are currently over 400 individual episodes of about 30 different programs, and the site is growing day by day. Check it out!

Excellent 50's sit com
The preon who did the previous review talks like he has been to America and never seen a sit com. My Little Margie is unimportant fluff, but you judge it by the stands of a sit com. You can compare a sit com to an Ingmar Bergman film.
As 50s sit coms go this one is better than most. It's fun, nice, nostalgic and happy making. It's so very interesting to see an artifact of that era. As an artifact of a by gone era its priceless.

People watched this?
This is really awful. Bad acting, stupid plot. And Gale Storm gasping every time she takes a breath to say something is annoying. Why is her father such a boob, afraid of his boss and constantly put down as incompetent, and yet somehow manages to live in a palatial apartment and buy his daughter a sports car? He must do someting right in his work, but he's terrified of his boss who thinks he's useless. Makes no sense.
